SHASTA DOUBLEFILE VIBURNUM 45-60cm ( 18-24") plant


18 in stock

Tree expert Michael Dirr calls this viburnum species "possibly the most elegant of flowering shrubs." Indeed, the tightly layered, velvety green leaf cover of this graceful shrub is appealing on it's own, and especially when it turns to reddish-purple in the fall. But the real show stopper is the spectacular array of pure white, flat-top flower heads which seems to float above the foliage in the spring. Shasta was selected for it's super size lace-cap blossoms that change into impressive, crimson berry clusters. The birds relish these berries which darken to nearly black by late fall. Shasta only reaches 2m (6') in height, but spreads out to 3m (10'). Ideal for a screen or hedge. (Viburnum plicatum f. tomentosa 'Shasta')

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
